The highly anticipated sequel to Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 1 is now in development, and thanks to the recent Final Fantasy 7 25thart Anniversary Celebration, we now have some additional information.
A remake of the iconic 1990s JRPG Final Fantasy 7 is called Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Instead of publishing the remake as a single title, Square Enix, the developer, decided to release it as a trilogy of three separate games, with the first part coming out in 2020 and the second and third parts presently in development.
Square Enix unveiled a first-look trailer for the upcoming standalone chapter of the trilogy, officially titled Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, during the celebration webcast and stated that the sequel will launch “next winter” for PS5 (so likely between December 2023 and February 2024). The third book in the trilogy still lacks a title and a tentative publishing date, though.

THE ONGOING REMAKE series of Square Enix’s seminal 1997 classic, Final Fantasy VII, still has a lot more ground to cover. The first entry, FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, is set in the smoggy metropolis of Midgar where it stinks of Mako. It expands the first several hours of the original game into an epic 40-hour adventure. So there’s still a whole lot more ground to cover in this world, and after an epic FF7 25th-anniversary stream held in June 2022, we now have a clear picture of the scope and scale of the remaining games! Here’s everything we know about the second entry
What is The FF7 Remake Part 2 Title And Release Date?
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2, officially called Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, will release “next winter” for PlayStation 5. This release window was confirmed during a special Final Fantasy 7 25th Anniversary Celebration stream on June 16, 2022. During the stream, it was also confirmed that Final Fantasy 7 Remake is being released as a trilogy of games, with Rebirth serving as the second distinct game in the series.
Unfortunately for PS4 owners, it sounds like Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth could be a PS5 exclusive as only Sony’s latest hardware was confirmed during the celebration. We expect, however, that, like Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 1, Part 2 will also arrive on PC at a later date once its PlayStation exclusivity runs out. Though, this hasn’t been confirmed. It’s unlikely to come to Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, for at least a few years. After all, two years since the release of Part 1, it’s still not arrived on Xbox consoles.
Is There an FF7 Remake Trailer?
As the camera pans to a desolate place outside the city, the trailer begins with a white feather drifting through the air close to Midgar. Aerith gives a confusing voice-over explaining how although the future may be predetermined, it can now be altered. (Spoiler: The squad murders the arbiters of fate at the end of the first game, freeing them from the original game’s chain of events.) Unsteady flashes of Meteor hitting the planet, Aerith pleading, and memory of Zack Fair and Cloud are shown to us.
However, the majority of the trailer is a pretty chill trek between Cloud and Sephiroth outside of Nibelheim in an imaginary past.
The main cast of characters should arrive at Kalm village where Cloud tells them a tale about the day he and Sephiroth visited Nibelheim if the plot of FF7 Remake is any indication of what will happen in Rebirth. We see the nearby Mako reactor in all its planet-destroying splendor as they ascend a slope.
What Is the FF7 REBIRTH STORY?
The party exits Midgar as the FF7 Remake credits begin to roll. This is the point in Final Fantasy VII’s original title that the game switches to an open-world, international adventure. The Forgotten City, where the first disc of the original game ends, is where the second portion of FF7 Remake will most likely end.
Following Midgar, the group seeks down the Black Materia, a magic spell that has the power to end all life in the world. In the Forgotten City, where Aerith was praying to unleash holy magic to combat Meteor, Sephiroth killed her after obtaining the Black Materia.
The sequel won’t necessarily follow the original FF7 story exactly, though.
In a July 2020 interview, Kitase predicted upcoming changes in the narrative: There are probably some folks who want to go back and relive the events of the story, he said. However, if we did that, all we would be doing is enhancing the original experience, which would render the Remake meaningless.
The animated film Advent Children and other spin-off games like Crisis Core are likely to be widely referenced in upcoming entries, especially after Part 1 struggled so intensely with these individuals resisting “Destiny.”
Will There Be Any New Features in Ff7 Remake?
Players will get access to a variety of new vehicles as Cloud’s trip progresses, judging by the original story. Chocobos, the ridable birds that appear in every Final Fantasy game, will almost certainly be obtained by players. Along with the Tiny Bronco airplane, which can only fly in shallow water, there is also a Buggy automobile. At one point, the player gains complete control of an airship, but this is probably not going to happen until subsequent games in the Remake series.
The combat in Final Fantasy VII Remake was significantly altered from the original, emphasizing combo-driven action and giving each of the four playable characters their own distinct fighting styles. There will probably be more battle styles as a result of the inclusion of new party members. The potential of Intergrade assaults to coordinate with one another may also offer a new layer of complexity to battles in Part 2 and beyond.
